  • Deploying thin clients. A single system can host many virtual desktops, which can be more cost effective than dropping a PC on every desk -- and it allows tighter IT controls and/or more flexibility for users. (359 votes)

Run a windows 98 machine in virtual box and let all the junk infect it. Instant streaming porn box! I save so much time not having to browse and the popups come up themself so it frees up both hands.

In all seriousness, a virtual machine can be a great way to use files and web sites that might otherwise pose a security risk. You simply restore the virtual machine to its previous state once you're done with whatever it is you're doing. ;)

Ugh, I'm feeding the DT/MS virtualization marketing machine just by posting.
